Sympathy for Idiots

a category based on the absence of an attribute, in this case empirical reason, is often a weak explainer. If reason and evidence isn't motivating this movement, then what is?

Nor does it offer an opportunity to reach out to this group and maybe change their minds. There must be a better way to describe this phenomenon.
